Steps for users outside CMU

  1. Download the tar.gz file for your architecture: Other architectures may be made available on request.
  2. Extract the files into a directory.
  3. Some of the files are Perl 5 scripts. By default, they expect Perl 5 to be in "/usr/local/bin/perl5". If you do not have Perl 5 there, either install it there or change the scripts to point to where it has been installed.
  4. Set the environment variable LACKWIT_HOME to point the directory.

That's it! Continue on to read the instructions on how to use Lackwit.

Once you have downloaded and installed these programs, their "bin" directories must be added to your search path so that Lackwit can find them.
